Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has urged fans to be more patient with the development of youngster Marcus Rashford.
The Englishman scored a hat-trick on his England Under-21 debut but was on the bench for Saturday's Manchester derby against Manchester City.
He came on in the second half to replace Jesse Lingard and according to the 34-year-old he will be one of the most important players in the future for the Red Devils.
"First of all, he's 18, he's still young. He has a lot of time," Ibrahimovic told MUTV.
"I think the way you have to approach a player like that, where everyone is talking about the talent and what he's able to do and what kind of potential he has, is to remember he still has a lot of time.
"It's not like he needs to take over the world today, the club knows that, the coach knows that and the team knows that.
"We know his quality and what he's able to do. What the world is seeing now, we already know because we see it every day.
"There is no need to rush to push him and put him in the heat zone and put a lot of pressure on him because that can have the opposite effect. Time by time, he will take over everything. It's about having patience.
"I'll help him every day, him and all the others, in any way I can. I'm happy it gives an effect but, even if I was not here, they would still do good."
